After contributing to 31 goals in all competitions for Monaco last season (14 goals, 17 assists), the Frenchman has endured a slightly more subdued time on the pitch this campaign, scoring twice and making four assists in Ligue 1.

Lemar has been tipped as a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho at Anfield, while the Reds are also looking at Schalke's Leon Goretzka and Dortmund's Christian Pulisic.

Liverpool have been given a huge boost in their pursuit of AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar, as his current manager Leonardo Jardim has dropped a hint in an interview with L'Equipe that a deal could happen in January.

Sky Sports News reporter Swanson provided the latest update on Monaco forward Lemar in the January transfer window.

His advent also saw a gamut of clubs express their interest in Lemar last summer, with Arsenal the final club, who sought to sign him.

Hargrave reportedly told district Superintendent Jerome Puyau that it was a " slap in the face " that he was receiving a raise. No charges will be filed against a Vermilion Parish teacher who was arrested at a school board meeting last night.


Liverpool are just one of the Premier League clubs reported to hold an interest in Lemar, and Arsenal even saw a bid rejected last season for the 22-year-old.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday afternoon, the 43-year-old Portuguese said "we are not used to selling in the winter".

The former were willing to sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City this summer if they could get Lemar, but the deal fell through.

According to the Sun, Liverpool are set to swoop for the £90million rated ($121.9million) star by readying an offer for him this month.

Lemar would be a natural replacement for Coutinho but Liverpool FC could be forced to pay over the odds for the talented France attacker given Monaco will be aware of the Reds' inflated transfer budget.
